Sigma 17-35 mm f2.8-4.0 EX DG HSM

Review Date: Apr 4, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Good general purpose wide-angle zoom. Better than average sharpness. Built like a tank.
Cons:
A little on the heavy side. 77mm filters get expensive. Doesn't work well with pop-up flash (lens shading)

I've been using this lens for over a year. It does a pretty good job in most situations. My biggest complaint is it feels like a boat anchor. Second biggest complaint is that it isn't a good lens for indoor shooting unless you're using a speedlight. It will shadow your images using the pop-up flash. I've got some good results with this lens making landscape shots though. When I head to the mountains, it is always in my bag and will always get used.

Pros: Very Sharp. Very inexpensive. Very lite.
Cons:
Plastic

Another must have prime for the budget minded. It's very sharp and weighs nothing. There is no reason a Canon owner shouldn't have this lens.

Pros: Small, easy and sharp.

None yet

What more can you ask for this price. Add a prime to your collection and pick this lens up. You won't regret it.
